“Talk to the Hand” Is Dead.

Thanks to this man.

Hero to Mycologists and Mathematicians Alike...

Hero to Mycologists and Mathematicians Everywhere

Ladies and gentlemen, please raise your half-baked axioms and Golden Chanterelle frittatas for a toast.  A toast to Mr. Grigory Perelman of St. Petersburg, Russia, THE MAN who found the solution to Henri Poincaré’s theorem known as “Poincaré’s Conjecture”, THE MYTH who quit researching as a member of the international mathematics community in disgust four years ago, is jobless, allegedly owns a cockroach-ridden flat but lives with his mother and sister and has refused the Clay Mathematics Institute’s $1,000,000 prize for his findings, and, THE LEGEND who refused a journalist’s mobile phone request for a statement by declaring:

“You are disturbing me. I am picking mushrooms.”

Thank you, Mr. Perelman, for bestowing us with the greatest rebuking of a press request of all time.  May we all honor Mr. Perelman’s genius by incorporating “You are disturbing me.  I am picking mushrooms” as often as possible in our daily lives.

I have been waiting for that report for 15 minutes! What's the hold-up?!?

You are disturbing me.  I am picking mushrooms.

When does Cymbals Eat Guitars go on? We haven't eaten for days and might have time to run to Pies 'n' Thighs.

You are disturbing me.  I am picking mushrooms.

Is my tanning booth ready yet? I have a standing hourly appointment.

You are disturbing me.  I am picking mushrooms.

Help! My cow wandered into your chicken coop!

You are disturbing me.  I am picking mushrooms.  And get a life.

So, raise your theorems and Hen of the Woods high, and cheers, Mr. Perelman.  Thank you and cheers.
